Lucy Come Home (A Yada Yada Journey of Hope) by Dave & Neta Jackson

Lucy Come Home (A Yada Yada Journey of Hope)

Summary:

Lucy Tucker has been on the streets of Chicago for 50 years. Why won't she come home?

Fifteen-year-old Cindy worked long days beside her migrant worker family in Michigan's sugar beet fields in the early 1940s - the "war years" - until she met a dashing young man from a traveling carnival, bringing some joy and fun into her hard-scrabble life. But a tragic twist of fate - and a dead field boss - sent the two young people on the run, leaving behind family and everything she'd ever known.

Lucy Tucker, the crotchety old bag lady from the popular Yada Yada House of Hope series, is a veteran of the Chicago streets and not about to give up her independence, even as she approaches her 80th birthday. Until, that is, a young displaced woman with her gentle ageing mother and a dog named Dandy seem to need her - unsettling the secretive Lucy, who doesn't let anyone get too close. But just when it seems her past is catching up with her to bring her in out of the cold...Lucy disappears again.

How these two tales intersect and intertwine between past and present gradually shines light into the dark corners of Lucy's murky past. But...why won't Lucy come home?

What a gem this book turned out to be, let me say it's been a while since I had the privlege to review such a thought provoking work of fiction that was such a touching read. I warn you if you're the type that cries over an emotional read you may want to have a box of tissues beside you just in case.

I was very impressed with the way that the husband ad wife author team laid out their story. It was seemlessly written and I felt as though I was actually in the story watching it all play out. I really loved how they wrote about Lucy and touched on one of the topics that is plaguing North America. In such a modern time in such modern countries the idea that there are still homeless people baffles me.

This was such a touching story I couldn't help but love Cindy Tucker who as the story went on became Lucy Tucker. There was just something about her that I loved. Perhaps it's because of her story or may it's just how they created her there was just an inherient goodness about her that I was drawn to.

All in all I thought this was a great read for those who are fans of Christian fiction or those just looking for a heart warming tale that tugs at your heart strings. I would have absolutely no problem recommending this one to anyone really and I think it would make a lovely gift for people who enjoy this type of novel.
